From the Central Alberta Humane Society

**PUPDATE – Angel**

Hi everyone! We wanted to send an enormous thank you from the entire team for your generous donations, thoughts and prayers for this sweet girl. We are overwhelmed by your kindness and compassion.

We named this love Angel because oh my…she is the sweetest, and it’s Christmas after all!

Yesterday she spent some time with Dr.Lisa having X-Rays and tests. She has confirmed that she does have an irreparable paralysis in her back end. Her weight and condition is a real concern and so we are looking closely at her tests to be sure that there is no underlying condition that is causing this. She does have a very healthy appetite and is going to the bathroom. It is early days…

Some asked yesterday is if her paralysis has caused incontinence and sadly it has. She is not in any pain. We believe based on her atrophy that she has been this way for some time and has adapted. We also heard yesterday from a number of people who currently have dogs with similar conditions that are living healthy, quality lives with the use of a chair. This gives us all hope for a future for this pup… Please keep Angel in your thoughts and we will continue to monitor her progress, provide healing care and shower her with love on your behalf. ❤️

Please note:
At this time we are unable to comment on the ongoing investigation and what led to her condition.

***Warning***
These images are extremely upsetting, discretion is advised.

This poor girl was just brought into our care from the Town of Sylvan Lake Bylaw and is receiving urgent veterinary diagnosis and care.

She was found outside of an apartment building in the Hinshaw drive area of Sylvan Lake. At this point it is unknown if she has sustained an injury or has a birth defect of some kind. What is known is that she is extremely malnourished and has no feeling in her back end whatsoever. This is clearly a case of neglect and potentially abuse. Any information you can provide will help us to understand her story and will be passed on to Alberta SPCA for further investigation. We don’t know what can be done for this sweet pup at this time but we do know that she is in the best of hands and will be loved.

Call (403)342-7722 if you have any information.

Donations towards treatment and care are appreciated.

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

A personal story:

“…I connected with the PCN program through my doctor’s recommendation. I have always been a thirsty learner of better ways to navigate through life. The Coaches of the program Journeying through Grief showed up every day with their humanness and wisdom.

I appreciated their loyalty to improve our wellness through learning to manage our grief. They were willing to be vulnerable in a way I have never seen in any kind of therapy or counselling. Their own histories with grief nurtured my trust and receptivity to the information.

They shared their personal experiences in dealing with life’s challenges. For me, I would describe my experience as emotional debridement. I am thankful for the contribution and support of everyone in the class. Several of us had mastered supporting others but needed to learn how to do this for ourselves.

Connection with empathy as in this group is nothing less than GOLDEN in creation of a better life of wellness in arguably a better world. Reflectively I now feel that my own grief was due initially to the loss of my dreams too quickly as important people did not believe in me. Not learning how to handle this made subsequent losses more difficult to manage.

I learned that dealing with grief is a journey and to never give up. If things get tough, have faith that things will get better soon…”

Germany reaches to younger audience with viral Covid-19 public service campaign

Published on

Sometimes in the tsunami of news coming from south of the border, we forget there are other countries fighting wars, having elections, and trying to win the battle against a pandemic that is wreaking havoc with their people and their economies.

Germany has been a leader in this since the start and after a summer of relatively low infection rates, is now facing a far bigger second wave. They’ve been leaders in testing and tracing initiatives and while its caseload climbed in the early stages, the number of deaths remained lower than many countries hardest it. Now the country is seeing its second wave and it’s much more dramatic with nearly four times as many infections.

A series of public service announcements have been produced to help convince the population to stay at home, and they’re funny.

The humorous campaign focuses on the idea of “Coronavirus Heroes”.  It’s shot in a documentary style and features older people reflecting on how they fought the pandemic when they were young. The three clips are featured below and they all contain English sub-titles.  Enjoy!
